Online conversation to address Tropical Storm Eta impacts

Residents along the beaches, low lying areas and mobile home parks in Pinellas County were impacted by Tropical Storm Eta, many incurring damage from the rain and storm surge. They now face issues with insurance, homes that are inhabitable and questions about disaster assistance.

To address citizens’ concerns, Pinellas County Emergency Management and Floodplain Management will hold an online conversation, “Flooding: Face, Fiction and FEMA,” to address on Tuesday, Dec. 15, from 6 to 7 p.m.

Moderator Hank Hodde, the county’s Sustainability and Resilience Coordinator, will be joined by Joe Borries, the Pinellas County Emergency Management Operations Manager, Lisa Foster, Floodplain Manager and Jess McCracken, Whole Community Engagement Specialist. Representatives from local municipalities are expected to join the conversation to talk about flooding risks in Pinellas County, disaster assistance, insurance policies and protecting a home in the wake of a flood. Questions will be addressed throughout the event.
